Bacon, Food Prep and 1st Day of Sane Challenge
I'm not a big one to sit in front of a TV very much. In fact most days I don't even look at the TV. I don't watch news nor do I watch reality shows. I am a fan of a few programs however, one being Orange is the New Black. And I'm happy to say last night I sat for three hours and watched the first episodes of season two. YAY It was a relaxing evening all by myself. The best way to watch the few shows I love.
Today is the first day of the Sane Challenge. We have a lot of new members and I'm excited because I see potential for all of them to be successful. And I'm excited because helping others be healthy and learn about their own bodies and how food affects them is a passion for me. I can't wait to see everyone results. My own included.
I was suppose to spend the day Paddle Boarding with friends, but mother nature had other plans for me. So I spent the day cleaning. Believe me, it was a much needed day.
I also was able to do some cooking and food prep to get ready for the next couple days of eating. Yesterday I bought 2 lbs of Boars Head Lunch meats, sliced about 1 1/2" thick so I could cube them. I measured 4 oz for a serving and packaged them up for easy meals. I figured a bag of lunch meat, along with some almonds and a baggy of grapes, or a pouch of applesauce will serve as a perfect balanced meal.
I also cooked up some of my favorite bacon. It's hard to find good bacon in the grocery stores because of the added sugars and nitrates. Applegate Naturals have a very good bacon and I found Vermilion Farm Market carries it in the freezer section.
I cooked some up and planned to have it for a couple breakfasts.
Ha, I ended up eating it all today. Oh well.
